Hotshoe has been in print since 1977. Renowned as a cutting edge photography magazine, it is well known in an industry that has changed dramatically since the 1970s. In 2002, Hotshoe was reinvented as a showcase of photographic portfolios, with a multitude of voices and opinion that include some of the most influential names in photography today, writing in one of the few truly independent publications, and distributed throughout the world.
Photograph what you know. This has long been good advice, but it has never been more relevant than in 2020. COVID-19 has had an enormous impact, not only on how we work and travel, but also on how we think and feel. As we enter this time of stronger borders and living local, we thought it would be comforting to do an issue featuring photographers that have been inspired by their families, their interior spaces, and their own back gardens.
Portfolios include work by Joan Albert, April Dawn Alison, Christopher Anderson, Narelle Autio, Judith Black, Motoyuki Daifu, Anna Fox, Bertien van Manen, Raymond Meeks, Michael E. Northrup, Trent Parke, Nigel Shafran and Larry Sultan.
